Podcast: Ryan Brandell

New York Rangers vs. Chicago Blackhawks

The Rangers are the class of the Eastern Conference. The Blackhawks are the class of the Western Conference. For the second time in just over a week the two teams meet in what we might be able to call a Stanley Cup Final preview if both teams stay healthy for the next two-plus months.

Ryan Brandell of Barstool Sports Chicago (known as “Chief” on that site), joined me to talk about welcoming the Rangers to the class of the NHL, the comfort of knowing your team is going to the playoffs early on and what to do with the shootout and loser point.
